holy city

March 12, 2007

You drop a mouth into me
whole, and I am never hungry
with you.

Shangri-La is for lovers:
it has no gate, no armies
nor is it hidden.

We only walk
through the valley together.
You tell me glaciers made it

long ago, cold tongues
splitting the land. From now on
lovers will be busy

tending the lotus city.
It births from your words
like a phoenix from snow.
